Friday I ordered new equipment for my new car... I've always been partial to alpine so I went alpine equipment ordered was as is... Head unit: ive-w530 component set: spr 60c coaxial: spr 60 sub: swr 12d4 amp: pdx v9... My question to you guys here is how is the newest line of type r equipment I've owned every line but nothing from the newest line of equipment... I love type x woofers but didn't need all that bass this time around... There are so many mixed reviews online and have always trusted opinions on here years ago just wanted to know if I purchased great equipment and if alpine made good improvements to the type r line I already know the pdx amp was a solid purchase just opinions on type r

Well that 12D4 is rated at 1K so it will laugh at your amp.

Well it's rated between 300-1000 and for the sound I'm going for I believe 500 watts will be plenty prolly a lil more than 500

The new type R is Alpine's answer to an increasingly loud competition, some say the new lost some of its original SQ.

I wouldn't worry too much since you already purchased it, at this point I would look at putting it into a well designed enclosure.

I havent heard the new type-s yet in a car (just in the demo wall at work) but it says its an underhung coil. just throwing that out there thought that was odd.

dang i didnt realize they came out with a new type r! i stand corrected lol. must be why we stopped carrying them at my work (best buy) since most customers only want a pair of woofers, and we dont offer anything to support 2kw.
